UPDATED: Forum Software Conversion - Thursday March 29 @ 2:00 pm EST

UPDATE: Forum Software Conversion Time Set!

The Forum will be closed around 1:50 EST on Thursday.* The current host will begin their export and once complete we will start the import into vBulletin.* We have tested this process and everything should work smoothly, Mr. Murphy should not be paying us a visit but we all know how that can work out sometimes.

If all goes as planned, the downtime will be fairly short.* We will import all the users and post and send out an email to everyone with a link to reset their passwords (you can use the same one you had on the old software but it WILL HAVE TO BE RESET).

Downtime could be as short as a couple hours or as long as 24 hours.* If you set your expectations that it's going to take a day but we are done much faster we will have more people pleased with the quick reopening on the new software.

There are a couple of things that everyone should prepare for in this conversion.

1) Private Messages will NOT be Imported - Due to privacy issues the current host will not export the private messages. *That means you will need to read and archive any private messages you want to save ASAP. *They do this because no one is allowed to see the private messages (Admins and Mods included).

2) Everyone will require a password reset - The current host will not provide the old passwords so everyone will have to reset their password after the conversion. *Please make sure your email address on file is up-to-date so the reset email will get to you. *We will also have the help desk to assist members via email as needed to make sure everyone gets back in.
